Housing benefit and the exemption from under 35 rule
Good evening could someone tell me please about Housing benefit and the exemptions from the under 35 rule. My son is 31 and lives in a private rented flat, he currently gets the shared room rate of HB because he is under 35 and in receipt of Income related ESA , he has just been awarded standard rate daily living component of PIP, does this mean he will now be entitled to the one bed rate of housing benefit? instead of shared room rate? We were told by our local HB office that he cant? but on several websites it says he can? can anyone help please. Thank you
